This bottle of perfume is part of the project Nasomatto.
The fragrance aims to evoke degrees of hysteria.
It is the result of a quest to stimulate irresponsible behavior.
The green absinthe fairy is swimming languidly through this viridiscent fragrant brew, sprinkling her emerald fairy dust of lucid dreaminess. The drink of choice for dreamers like Verlaine, Rimbaud, Van Gogh, Hemingway to name just a few, absinthe has long been associated with a certain bohemian, slightly hallucinatory state of mind, but in fact absinthe is more likely to give you a clear headed drunkenness. Contradictory, isn’t it? You can blame the unique mixture of plants used in its distillation, some stimulating others sedative, for this most unusual effect. Absinth the perfume gives us the same feeling: on one side bracing and refreshing with its hit of cool, almost mentholated spices and herbal greenery and on the other sensually soporific due to the balsamic sweetness. Absinth is also a very picturesque scent, evoking autumnal colours more than anything else: dark, mossy greens, rich, earthy browns, molten, rusty golds, plummy flashes of aubergine alongside fiery crimson splatters, in harmonious tandem with the intricate olfactory sensations which Absinth elicits. This is a slow moving, but elaborate fragrance, with a plethora of different nuances. There’s herbal bitterness, spicy coolness, the slight mouldy scent of turned soil, worn, soft leather, smoky tobacco, vanillic sweetness, vaguely floral variations, warm nutiness, ambrosial resins, and the journey goes on, always enchanting, never ordinary. Spectacular!
‘I start making something but at a certain point it starts making choices by itself.
It is the process that interests and guides me.
I like the feeling that I’m losing control and I’m not the one making the choices.
My involvement is to create something that is alive that will be able to say new things. I want my perfumes to have an intelligence of their own, not just be slave to my meaning.’
